Title: Pull the Stars from the Sky (1/10)
Author: [personal profile] roane
Pairing(s): John/Sherlock (eventually)
Rating: NC-17 (eventually)
Word Count: ~5,000 (this chapter)
Warnings: PTSD, drug addiction issues. WIP.

Summary: It’s the fall of 2000, and to help him out after his military career has ended due to injury, John Watson’s sister Harriet gets him a job as US tour manager for rising star of the industrial scene and enfant terrible, Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock’s not long out of rehab and there are plenty of doubts as to whether he’s serious about recovery. Plus, the music industry is shaking in its boots over the Napster mess. All John has to do is keep the money coming in and make sure his star doesn’t screw things up. After the army, that should be easy, right?

Author's Note: There are a lot of people who've helped with this: thanks to my fantastic betas emmadelosnardos and greywash, who have set me straight more times than I can count, already. Any mistakes are mine and not theirs. Also thanks to abundantlyqueer for soooo much military information and patience with my multitude of questions. And for my anonymous music insider, you know who you are.

Read at AO3.

Yup. It's started. :)

Well, in case you missed it from what I've been writing lately, I've been reading a LOT of Sherlock/John slash. One thing each of these stories has in common is that it made me go weak in the knees. That's probably not all they have in common, but I'll leave what the other items are as an exercise for the reader. I could seriously rec more than this, but this will do for a start.

Stringplay, [archiveofourown.org profile] PrettyArbitrary. Author says: "John secretly plays fiddle. Sherlock and his violin seduce him into a threesome."

Lisa says: Sometimes I'll read things that make me literally dizzy with the hotness of them. This is one of those things. Actually, just go read all of PrettyArbitrary's stuff, it'll save me the trouble of listing them all out. There's humor and sex and feelings all over the place. (Be warned though: "Cross Wired" is disturbing as HELL. I take no responsibility for your brain if you find yourself getting turned on by it.)


in deed accomplish our designs, [archiveofourown.org profile] greywash. Author says: When I don't touch you it's a mistake in any life, in each place and forever. Set after and in the same universe as "the sensation of falling as you just hit sleep"; orders of magnitude more plotless and filthy. WIP.

Lisa says: She lies like a lying thing. There's a plot, and a good one too. Of course, this being the fabulous greywash, there's a lot of very explicit sex, but it's NOT typical fanfic sex. There're misunderstandings, things don't always work, and so on. Also a lot of John and Sherlock trying to negotiate what it actually means, now that they're in a relationship. She's brilliant, and I kind of hate her for it.


Performance in a Leading Role, [archiveofourown.org profile] Mad_Lori. Author says: Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?

Lisa says: OMG. Fluffy and beautiful and romantic and it SHOULD NOT WORK, but it does. And it's full of some serious meta about the film industry, which was fascinating. This is a fandom classic for a reason.


If Metal Had a Choice and The Overflow, [archiveofourown.org profile] anarmydoctor.

Author says: "If Metal Had a Choice": "Sherlock has his heart in the throat when he says Take my hand, and the metal of their handcuffs shines proud and thankful, because that’s the instant, that’s the second, that’s the reason why if metal had a choice, its choice would be now and here."

"The Overflow": "And sex, our sex, you and I having sex, is just the dirty negotiation between your pace and mine, between your flow and mine sharing the same track, and when that happens, when we converge, then we are stronger, mightier than ever, we are a torrent, and that’s the point of no return, the overflow."

Lisa says: anarmydoctor is a poet. Seriously. I have never read anyone who uses words the way she does. She claims it's because English is not her first language, and okay maybe. But still. Absolutely stunning. My only complaint is that I wish she wrote MORE.

Title: "Displacement" (2/?)
Author: [personal profile] roane
Pairing(s): John/OFC, John/Sherlock pre-slash
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,700 (this chapter)
Warnings: Identity confusion, genderplay, some angst. WIP.
Summary:John's not ashamed of her, precisely. She's a perfectly lovely woman in her own right. Gorgeous, in fact. More than that even, the cause of some of the hottest sex he's ever had in his life. Which is precisely why he can't bring her home.
Author's Note: Extra thanks to [archiveofourown.org profile] roseredhoofbeats for the beta and the hand-holding.

Read Chapter 2 at AO3, or from the beginning.

Damn you, Sherlock fandom. Damn you all to hell for being so damned talented.

Two Two One Bravo Baker by abundantlyqueer: Nope. Don't read slash, don't like AUs. Nope. Except why did I devour this 110,000 word piece of AU casefic loaded with plenty of sex in less than 12 hours (including some time spent sleeping)? Seriously, I COULD NOT STOP READING.

Mycroft sends Sherlock to Afghanistan 7 months before the events of "A Study in Pink" to solve a war atrocity that threatens to bring down the British and American governments. Sherlock meets Captain John Watson and the rest of his squad and good lord there's a lot of sex. Well-written, makes-you-think-your-head-might-explode sex.

But the thing is, if the author isn't military, they've damn well done their homework. It does a fantastic job of putting you right there in Afghanistan with the British military. I have never read anything like this. And if anyone's paying attention, my birthday is coming up in July, and I would very much like a bamf!John in uniform to show up on my doorstep about then. Only, you know, interested in women. :) ETA: Wait! I have it from abundantlyqueer directly that bamf!John is, in fact, bi. Be still my beating heart.

Psychophysical Examinations of Perceptual Effects of Differential Somatic Stimulation (or: Fuck Off And Leave My Bloody Balls Alone, Would You, Sherlock?) by jedusaur: THE TITLE. The title made me read it. It manages to be funny as hell and more than a little hot at the same time. So much geek there.
